I’ll be glad to be your Paris Photographer!
If you’re thinking of taking a photo session in Paris with a professional photographer to have some wonderful memories of your Parisian stay, you’re in the right place!
Below you will find all the information for an unforgettable photographic experience in Paris.
Here you can see a small portfolio that can offers you an idea of my style of photography.
You can decide to entrust me completely with the choice of the photographic style for our photoshoot, or to be an active part of the artistic process sending me your ideas and inspirations by e-mail.
Paris offers so many amazing locations for breathtaking photos.
You can choose your favorites among the most scenographic:
We can have a photoshoot in every moment but the very best one is at sunrise because of the amazing light and few people around.
As you know sunrise is not always at the same time, CLICK HERE for a link to a very clear timetable with the sunrise hours in Paris.
The sunrise slot is reserved for 1h30′ or 3h photo session.

You don’t have to be a professional dancer to enjoy the photo session experience and get great photos. Even if it’s your first time in front of a camera we surely be able to get great results.
The most important thing is to be prepared!
How to get ready?
There are 4 important aspect that you have to consider: outfit, poses, make up and props.
To have a more scenographic effect I recommend to wear a tutu and ballet shoes.
If you can bring a bag with some clothes it would be great so you can change your outfit in function of location and colors.

I know that Paris is not known as a warm climate city, and it’s true!
Consider that usually it takes 3 to 5 minutes to take a very good photo and, if it’s cold, between each shooting you can put your jacket on. If it’s very cold I bring a thermos with hot tea. It helps!
You can change in a Café or in my portable pop up changing tent ( I bring it only during late springtime and summer ).
As I already said, you don’t have to be a professional model to get great photos, but you have to get prepared for the photo session.
That means that you have to try different poses at home in front of a mirror taking inspirations from the web.
You can use Instagram or Pinterest to find many ideas about them, CLICK HERE for a link to the Pinterest Board where I collect inspirations about ballet and dance poses.
If you have planned to do the make up by yourself, great!
Try it a couple of days before to be sure about it and to understand how it takes to get ready.
It’s important to have a great make up but also to be in time for your photoshoot!
If you are looking for a make up artist in Paris, I’ll be glad to share some contacts with you.
Props are not necessary but they can be useful to give a touch of sensational to your photos and also, if it’s your first photoshoot, they help you to be more confident.
You can bring whatever you want, the only important thing is to tell me exactly what it is so I can think about the photos.
– floral headband
– angel wings
If you want I can bring the balloons, it’s an extra ( + € 30 ) and I need to know it at least three days before the photoshoot. About the color of the balloons, I suggest to choose one that match with your outfit.
Props: Red Heart Umbrella
The great day has come, now you only have to arrive on time and have a lot of fun!
Once you have choose your outfit, practiced your poses, planned your make up, and get your props or asked me to provide them, you only have to arrive on time for the photoshoot!
It’s so important to be on time because photography is a question of light, locations and alchemy between photographer and models.
Coming late, the light will be different, there will be more other people around and even if I’m very patient I won’t have the same state of mind. It’s really important, BE ON TIME!
For these reason provide me your Parisian address, and I’ll send you an e-mail that clearly explains all the possible transport solutions to get in time to the meeting point and a link to the most useful free app to move in Paris.
Before the photo session we will have a 5′ briefing on location, spots, poses, my way of working and I’ll give you just a few suggestions.
There a few questions that you surely still have, here the answers to the most common ones!
If you cancel your photoshoot a week before you’ll be completely refunded in a few days.
The weather in Paris is a bit unpredictable and that’s the reason why I try to schedule an A plan and a B plan for the photoshoot in different days/time. ( ex. A plan 5th March at sunrise, B plan 6th March at 10h30 )
I check the weather forecast a couple of days before the photoshoot, and if it says heavy rain I propose you to move on B plan.
It has never happened, but in case of heavy rain on both the dates I’ll propose you to re-schedule or I’ll refund you.
At the same time, some light rain or showers here and there can sometimes be the good excuse for an empty Paris. And what is more romantic than a couple under an umbrella ?
Just look at them. Share. Print. Everything you’d like!
You can pay the deposit by PayPal or by Bank Transfer. You can pay what is left in cash or by PayPal.
Of course, you will alternate in the poses and at the end you will choose the photos together.
